There is more than Disney in Anaheim
Anaheim, California is best known for being the location of Walt Disney resorts and theme parks. Millions of people visit annually, but there is much more to find in the area than that. There are several trade shows, expositions, events, and festivals that happen throughout the year. Anaheim Music Festivals, for example, include music to appeal to all tastes. There is a “Rock’n’Blues Fest” is August, a Mariachi Festival in October, and the Heritage Festival every summer. For fans wishing to relive the age of disco, the “Lost 80’s Live” event occurs in October. The West Coast Nate Fest is enjoyed in September.
In addition to festivals, many clubs and restaurants in and around Anaheim offer nightly live music of all kinds. Everything from classical music at a dance hall to jazz music at a New Orleans themed club and restaurant can be found to entertain every member of a group or family. Concert venues, music in parks, and bands on dinner cruises also provide a variety of music styles, renditions, and tempos. Whether the desire is to find background music for a romantic dinner for two, or loud heavy metal music for head-slamming style dancing, no one will be disappointed.
Other Anaheim events include trade shows and expositions, film festivals, both County and State Fairs, as well as fairs and events that feature arts and crafts. There also shopping malls, sports venues, recreational centers, spas, outdoor activities, and a multitude of tours, theaters, and museums. There is always something exciting to do so planning ahead for a vacation, or to attend a particular event, is wise. Flights, accommodations, and transportation may be difficult to arrange on a last minute basis. It may be possible if traveling alone, but is not likely when traveling in a group.
Families, friends, and tour groups will want to book visits to Anaheim well in advance to ensure availability. Go online to find tickets to a particular festival or event first, and then proceed from that point to plan the entire trip. Some sites that offer tickets also have package deals that include transportation and accommodations. Planning ahead can also save people money of their vacation.
